Guys, sorry to ask my question here but tolong help me if you can.

After I give up my Starhub cable TV subscription (soon), can I continue to watch the free TV channels from the SH TV point or do I need to get technician to create new TV point for me?

Also, is it better to get new digital TV or just buy the set-top box/antenna? I dun watch TV much.

Kam sia!

If you cancel your StarHub TV subscription before Dec 2018, you can apply for the DTV Starter Kit at https://starterkit.digitaltv.sg/#apply, as you can't receive Mediacorp TV channels from the SH TV point after 2018.

The Starter Kit will entitle you to a free set top box and indoor antenna, or you can use it to buy a new TV for a $100 discount.

no point to create tv point.

IMDA's dbv-t2 initiative is to do away all tv points.

If you stay in HDB flat, you can write to IMDA to ask for the $100 voucher after you terminated your starhub.

Good news everyone! Seems like courts Clementi has replenished the STB stocks - both NMS and Draco. I gt a Draco STB 100$ - The STB is bundled with a funke250 antenna. Looks v nice n presentable. Antenna can b placed vertically n horizontally.

Hav tested the channels- stay clementi. Only can get local FTA channels. On off antenna power at settings seems no diff to me. Hav yet to test the recording function. Will either use my 1TB or get a new 5TB hdd for recording.

Any bro can highlight y i cant get msia channels? Search channels thru auto scan at settings.

does your funke antenna feel like theres a loose part inside mine feels that way? i cant receive any malaysia channels from upper bukit timah either. analogue still can get tv1 all these =\ now only all sg channel...

Hi Bro

Just to clarify:

Does this mean that I can use the SCV TV point (connect to my TV) to watch free channels even if I am no longer SH TV subscriber (ie before 1 Jan 2019)?

(I thought the SCV TV point is exclusive only to SH subscribers, and hence I may need to have a new TV point created for my use. Currently I am using the SCV TV point to watch cable TV).

Hi Bro

If move to digital and use the DTV starter kit, does this mean no need to connect TV to wall TV point anymore?

Yes, you can still use the SCV TV point to watch free Mediacorp channels albeit analogue SD channels until 31st December 2018.

However, you may want to switch to digital TV after cancelling your StarHub TV subscription so you don't have to bother with the switch after the analogue TV shutdown after 2018.

When you switched to digital TV, you don't have to connect your TV to the SCV TV point.

In other words, come 1 Jan 2019, the SCV points no use for everyone already, right?

It will still be useful for those still subscribing to StarHub cable TV, but StarHub is doing migration to fibre TV in the meantime as they will cease the cable network in 2020.

Is it possible to redeem set top box from the retailer on behalf of my dad by bringing his IC & redemption letter? Anyone done this before?

You have to fill up the authorisation form on the starter kit letter.
